Sean McGoldrick misses out on huge Welsh homecoming

Sean McGoldrick misses out on huge Welsh homecoming

Last night, Newport’s Sean McGoldrick (4-0, 2KO) was left frustrated as his planned homecoming didn’t happen.

The super-bantamweight was a live float on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s (21-0, 20KO) world heavyweight title unification with Joseph Parker (24-1, 18KO) at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, meaning he would be fit in to schedule if other fights ended early.

However, five of the seven undercard fights on the Matchroom Boxing event were extended to the final round and coupled with extended national anthems for the headliner, it meant there was no time for the unlucky McGoldrick.

He was due to face Southampton’s Ricky Little (3-2-1, 1KO), who came with a winning record and ambitions of his own. The former super-flyweight has only been stopped once and that came against world title challenger Charlie Edwards.

McGoldrick, who won medals at the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games during a seven year spell with Team GB, was due to fight on home soil for the first time since he turned professional a year ago. Instead, the prospect had his hands wrapped for practically the entire show and didn’t have the chance to fight.

The Mack The Knife [MTK] Global managed talent, who is trained by Tony Borg at St Joseph’s Boxing Club, has been kept busy in his maiden year in the paid code and plans to get him back in action are underway.
